Red Jet Not Taking Responsibility for Passengers Left Behind
Regional Carrier RedJet would like passengers booked to travel on the carrier to ensure they always check with the airline prior to their departure date in case of any schedule changes as they should do with any airline.
Redjet officials say they are aware that some passengers were left behind on some flights following changes to the schedule. But the carrier said it made all efforts to contact passengers on the contact information they provided. Today Redjet’s business development manager Robbie Burns told Capitol News that he understands the existence of the problem but travelers need to understand their own responsibilities.
Then there’s the issue of the carrier branching out to other markets. Burns said red jet will continue to have a very strong presence in the Guyana market for what he described as fierce loyalty. He said the carrier has taken note of other countries wanting Redjet to fly to their shores but that may not be possible.
And the low cost carrier wants the authorities here to address the issue of the price for aviation fuel in Guyana. Its just too high, the business development manger said.
Redjet began operations between Barbados and Guyana a few months back and will move into the Trinidad, Jamaican and Antiguan markets pretty soon. Flights between Guyana and Trinidad will begin in September while flights to Antigua should come on stream by January.
